Why the Language of Work Is Not Our Best Model
Newbold, Patricia L.
Performance Improvement, v50 n9 p20-25 Oct 2011
As Danny G. Langdon wrote in September 2010, for human performance technology to be a science, it needs commonly understood and applied models. He proposed his language of work (LOW) model. This article presents arguments for a very different model, one that cuts the cord to our profession's beginnings in the design of programmed instruction, looks for opportunities instead of gaps, and incorporates the findings of the new field of positive psychology about performance.
